I am a story telling, adventure seeking, deep thinking, adrenaline loving, yoga posing, paddle boarding, trail running, crazy dancing, music jamming, kid adoring, mental health advocating, book reading, boy momming (did I make that word up?) photographer based in the gorgeous PNW.
I fell in love with photography in high school as a way to express myself creatively during a difficult time in my life. I started my journey as a photographer after the birth of my oldest son in 2008 and I have been hooked since!
Just like music and writing…I believe photography is attached to memory. One picture can bring us back to a time and place and remind us of little things and feel feelings of that time. I love the way photos will bring back a feeling and memory locked away and gives access to moments otherwise quickly forgotten. My goal is to get to know your family, collect these moments and preserve your memories and to tell the authentic story of you!
What is your story? If you are looking for a studio setting, traditional posing, cheesy smiling, all eyes looking directly to the camera…you have come to the wrong place. What I offer instead? An amazingly fun time with you, or your family in a location that fits your style. I don’t just capture you, I capture who you are…who your family is in an artistic, fresh way! My sessions are described as relaxed and fun with limited posing and more about documenting your interactions with each other. I will pick settings and lighting that works best, but the rest is really just myself directing or coaching you to interact with each other in ways that will best tell your story! Of course, I do my best to get those “everybody looking at the camera” shots, but the majority of the time is spent having fun!
